Next week, Thursday, August 13th, is Left Handers’ Day. I’m right-handed, so why should I care? Let alone celebrate? Because “righties” can learn something from “lefties”—how to think on the right side of the brain.
For those of you not into psychology and neuroscience, our favored brain side is opposite our dominant hand. Hence, right-handed people are mainly left-brain thinkers, and vice versa. Why does this matter? Because the left side of the brain governs logic and objectivity. The right side of the brain governs creativity and intuition. As writers, it is the right side of our brain we want to tap into. Hence, the advantage goes to the minority of writers (and all people) out there, the left handed.
Us righties have to struggle to put our emphasis on creativity and emotion. To think with our hearts instead of our heads. I guess that makes me a little envious of the left-handed. And that’s no left-handed compliment.
Which side of the brain do you rely on most?
